Interactive Project Stage 5 Complete
So here’s stage 5 suggested by Renee's 8 year old daughter who requested red, pink & blue flowers. I now need another 10 suggestions. Read all the rules for the interactive project here. All entries go into the draw to win the final painting!
I have been slacker than usual with my blogging and it’s really getting to me. I’m trying to get back into the habit of regular posts.. I just had a lull but I think I’m back into it now. Actually, I had a lull with my artwork too. Working as a creative person has its ups & downs, (as I’m sure most jobs do!) though sometimes it’s hard to do work when you’ve no inspiration and you feel like all your work is crap! I think I put a lot of pressure on myself, and I buckle when I don’t live up to my own expectations.
I read a good quote in Craft magazine (I think it was in an ad): “My hands get jealous of all the work my mind does.” God that’s so true! If I could just figure out this telekinesis thing I’ll be alright.
You know what brought me out of it though? I was reading the black apple’s blog, (which I love) and her gorgeous new fashiony blog and was so inspired by her decorating habits, that it really made me feel like I should just get off my lazy butt and do something. Her hedgehog themed bathroom especially inspired me. So adorable! I now have an urge to redecorate the house and clean it until it’s all organised. Like lyrics from a Radiohead song.. “Everything.. in it’s right place…” Wouldn’t that be nice? I need to see some storage ideas especially for my studio as it’s quite small. Anyway, looking through her blog I was transported to a fabulous shop called anthropology. I could cry because I have been searching for the perfect bed ‘outfit’ for AGES and I have found it in this shop. Not only would it be more expensive for me to buy because it’s in the US, but they don’t ship overseas! If any of you Aussie people out there know where I can find unique and different bedding, please let me in on your shopping secrets! It’s gonna be hard to find one that lives up to this one though. I am in love with it!! Check it out here.
Linky love: Future Girl has the coolest sweetest little octopus pattern for sale. If you haven’t already seen it, check it out!
